Asha shows John her world, the world of the forest. She tells John that she is a narun, a being made of prana – the stuff of life. Her people are the aaranya – dryads. She shows him that she can merge with the trees and share their life. She tries to teach John that he is not broken, that his mind has opened so that he, too, can now sense the life of the forest around them. To John this is a world beyond belief, but he wants it to be real, he wants Asha to be real.

They argue and Asha leaves. John quickly realises that, whatever his doubts, he is not ready to be parted from Asha, and he enters the forest to try and find her. He finds more of her people and discovers that Asha has disappeared, and her people fear that a new conflict is erupting between the narun peoples. To save Asha, and help the aaranya, John must overcome his doubts. His path leads back to the human world where he finds that he is not the only human that knows of the narun, and John’s own rare gift, the ability to sense life, now puts him in danger.

About the Author

G. M. Worboys grew up on a dairy farm in Victoria, Australia. Education and life led him to the city, first Melbourne and then Sydney. After almost twenty years he decided enough was enough and moved to a small bush block in the southern tablelands of New South Wales, from which he continues to create computer software for clients far removed from the kangaroos and goannas that stare in at him through the office window. A life-long obsession with books finally led him back to writing, an interest that for many years had seen exercise only in technical writing and scarily long emails.Dryad was his first novel, inspired in part by the trees and the life that is so varied and abundant even in the dry of the Australian bush. Naiad and Nereid complete this first contemporary fantasy series, The Narun, but the writing hasn't stopped.
